amendment. congressman jordan, you are a big sponsor of this. president obama says it would cut medicare and social security much more deeply than paul ryan's budget plan. >> it mirrors the budget proposal that house passed earlier this year. we like to do it as a common sense american plan. americans know we're spend toog much, we're headed for a cliff, we're headed for bankruptcy. let's cut spending in year one, cap it as a percentage of our economy going forward. everyone understands our government is getting too big. do something historic. for the first time in american history, pass a balanced budget amendment through the house and the senate, send it to the states. have this requirement that everyone else has to live under, make the federal government either has a $14 trillion debt, let's make up with the same requirement everyone else has to abide by. >> chris: since sensible. congressman van hollen, what is wrong with cut, cap and balance and what are the chances it will get through the house, senate and signed by the president? >> no one should be fooled about this. they're not

? >> the problem with a myny deal, we have a maxi problem. the big problems aren't going to go away if you cut a mini deal. all it does is delay the moment of truth. apt so i'd say better now than then. if we can't, then we'll take the savings we can get now and we will relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> all right. in addition to dealing with the content of negotiating this deal, there is a p.r. battle involved here as well. senate majority leader harry reid has had a lot to say about what is standing in the way of getting something done. let's take a listen. >> the obstacle, and i want to be very clear, to finding common ground is republicans stubborn insistence on proit canning tax funding and give-aways to corporations and individualindividuals that don'd the give-aways. >> the president has also framed this choice. earlier in week as kids going to college, or tax breaks for corporate jets. i mean it's something they said with the miles per hour public is an easy choice -- said that american public, an easy choice for them. what is the plan for that bat? >> senator reid ha

"a g.o.p. faction is fixated on a balanced budget amendment. after thursday's stall, the new boehner plan will only authorize the second tranche of debt if two-thirds pass it in the senate and send it to the states for ratification. this will not happen. republicans are not looking like adults to whom voters can entrust the deficit." how do you respond to that? >> why do you believe it could not happen? i believe in this country. i believe this country is worth fighting for. if 16 years ago if we had that one more vote, we wouldn't
